VIDEO: First Look - Lyric Video for Justin Timberlake's SUIT & TIE
This morning, Justin Timberlake released his highly anticipated lyric video for his new single "Suit & Tie". Lyric videos are produced to help fans memorize lyrics and to build suspense for artists' actual music video. Typically they will not feature the artist themselves. However "Suit & Tie" strays from the norm, showcasing new clips of Timberlake throughout the video. Check it out below!
The song featuring Jay-Z recently broke on-air records and and soared to the top of the global charts, becoming iTunes top-selling single in its debut week.
In conjunction with the release, the former 'Nsync vocalist posted a letter on Countdown.JustinTimberlake.com:
I hope this gets to you the right way. It's the only way I know to do it. Some people may criticize me for the last 3 days. But it was fun, right?? Right?!?! Besides, I'd rather speak directly to all of you. And, who can knock me for having a little bit of fun with it?
Well... No more teasing. Although, it was A LOT of fun. (Did I mention that I'm having fun with this?? Ha!)
*Makes a serious face*
This year is an exciting one for me. As you probably have heard through the "grapevine," I'm gearing up for a big 2013.
Back in June of last year, I quietly started working on what is now, my next Journey with that thing I love called MUSIC.
The inspiration for this really came out of the blue and to be honest, I didn't expect anything out of it. I just went into the studio and started playing around with some sounds and songs. It was probably the best time I've had in my career... Just creating with no rules and/or end goal in mind and really enjoying the process.
What I came up with is something I couldn't be more excited about! It is full of inspiration that I grew up listening to and some newfound muses that I've discovered along the way.
I'm calling it "The 20/20 Experience," and it's coming out this year.
I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed making it.
That's all I'm giving you for now... I know, I know! Again, with the teasing!!!
Get ready. This is going to be fun (well, at least it is for me).
